Benedict Cumberbatch And His Wife Are Expecting Baby No. 2

Posted on Fri Oct 21st, 2016 1:17pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Benedict Cumberbatch and wife Sophie Hunter are having another baby!

A rep for the Doctor Strange star told Us Weekly “Everyone is absolutely thrilled.”

Thrilled and overwhelmed, we bet! The couple, who are both 38 years old, welcomed their first baby together in June 2015, a mere four months after their Valentine’s Day wedding.

The couple first met in 2009 on the set of the thriller Burlesque Fairytales and announced their engagement five years later via British newspaper The Times.
In an interview with Vanity Fair earlier this year, the Sherlock actor got candid about fatherhood, saying, “Having a baby — it’s massive … And on a very unexpected level. Suddenly I understood my parents much more profoundly than I ever had before.”

The beloved actor even said being a dad helped him with his acting career: “I was expecting, with Hamlet, that it might be a hindrance to be a father, because it’s all about being a son.” He continued, “But it’s the opposite. You understand much more about being a son, becoming a father.” Aww! How sweet!

We hope baby No. 2 will open his eyes even more!


Katy Perry And Miley Cyrus Hit The Road For Hillary Clinton This Weekend

Posted on Fri Oct 21st, 2016 12:34pm PDT       By X17 Staff

They're with her... and want you to be, too!

Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus are doing their part to encourage millennials to vote for Hillary Clinton this weekend, with the "Fireworks" singer set to perform a concert at The University of Nevada and the twerking queen set to do a little door knocking in Virginia. You go, girls!

The "Wrecking Ball" songstress will go door-to-door at George Mason University, located outside Washington D.C., to get people motivated to head to the polls. "As an advocate for LGBTQ rights, gender equality and environmental issues, Cyrus will knock doors to speak to students about the high stakes in this election for millennial voters, laying out Clinton's vision for an America that is stronger together," the campaign explained.

Earlier this week, the Clinton campaign launched the "Love Trumps Hate" concert series, with performances from some of music's biggest names scheduled for key battleground states. Jennifer Lopez will put on a show in Florida, while Jon Bon Jovi will rock the house down in Pittsburgh and Tampa.

"This election is one of the most important in our lifetime. Florida, home to one of my favorite cities, Miami, and millions of Latinos is a pivotal state in this election. It’s time to unify, support, and vote for the only choice that makes sense not only for Women or for Latinos, but for all Americans. Vote for Hillary. I’m with her," J.Lo explained.

Meanwhile, the only celebs in Trump's camp are John Voight and Scott Baio!

Azealia Banks Apologizes For Her Racist, Homophobic Rant Against Zayn Malik

Posted on Fri Oct 21st, 2016 12:30pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Azealia Banks is changing her tune!

After hurling racist and homophobic insults at Zayn Malik back in May, the rapper has penned a very emotional and heartfelt apology to the "Like I Would" singer just days after her hotel room fight with Russell Crowe. The sentiment of the letter is great -- but it's a little late!

In the open letter to Malik, the 25-year-old said she was she’s sorry for launching into the shocking and foul-mouthed tirade against the former One Directioner.

The outspoken performer said she wanted to apologize after the incident with Crowe, explaining, “There are no words that can fully express how sorry I am. Recent events have taught me the importance of taking accountability for one's actions ... I want and need to say I am sorry, I was wrong.”

The "Ice Princess" singer added, “Coming from an ethnicity that is largely discriminated against does not warrant a license to use derogatory, abusive terminology nor does it give me the right to make hurtful remarks."

We agree with all of this!

BTW: In case you forgot what she's apologizing for, here's just one unsavory morsel from her rant: "Dude, I make better music than you. Simmer down with that fake white boy rebellion and that wannabe beiber swag. Lol u a b*tch n--ga for even responding like that. Keep sucking this yung rapunxel d--k u hairy curry scented b*tch."

She also said, "Imma start calling you punjab you dirty b*tch. You a d--k rider for real for real. Ride this d--k until the wheels fall off Punjab."

Oh and if that wasn't bad enough, she said, "U.S.A IS ABOUT TO TEACH YOU WHO NOT TO F--K WITH!! When your entire extended family has been obliterated by good ol the U.S of A will you still be trying to act like a white boy pretending to be black? Do you understand that you are a sand n----- who emulates white boys' renditions of black male hood? Do you know how lost and culture less you are?"

Well she certainly has a way with words! We're glad she's using her words for good today!


Tyler Perry Dishes On What It Was Like Working With Kim Kardashian On Temptation

Posted on Fri Oct 21st, 2016 11:45am PDT       By X17 Staff

What does Tyler Perry really think of working with Kim Kardashian?!

The media mogul let fans in on what it was like filming with the glamorous reality star when he stopped by Watch What Happens Live on Thursday night and dished about her role in his 2013 movie Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.

On the show, a caller asked Perry, "Who did you have a better time working with — Kim Kardashian or Sweet Brown?"

Perry was quick to defend Kardashian, ”First of all, Kim is a professional … A lot of people don't know this about Kim -- Kim is very, very professional. She's on time, she's prompt, she does what she's supposed to do. She was really great to work with."

He then gushed about working with Kimberly "Sweet Brown" Wilkins and said how much fun he had with her. So it's pretty clear Sweet Brown stole his heart -- but at least Kimmy was profesh!

In Temptation, which also starred Jurnee Smollett-Bell,Vanessa Williams and Brandy Norwood, Kardashian played a super sexy marriage counselor. We wonder if playing that role has helped her keep things going with Kanye?!

Posted on Fri Oct 21st, 2016 10:35am PDT       By X17 Staff

Don't mess with mama bear!

Chrissy Teigen isn't one to take any s**t, so it's no surprise that she fired back when a Twitter follower accused her of holding daughter Luna wrong during a recently photographed outing in NYC.

"This is not how a baby is held," the troll wrote. "Really because that’s how I’m f**king holding her," the Sports Illustrated stunner clapped back. "I don’t give a crap where that baby popped out from! Do not hold a baby like a handbag!" the antagonistic fan sniped.

"Well you hold your handbag like a f**king idiot then," the model quipped. "Let me know how you hold your baby when she’s about [to get] into a stroller and there are 20 camera flashes at night. Photos are literally split-second moments in time that evolve. I despise mommy shamers. I am a proud shamer of mommy shamers. Please, do shut up," she concluded. Mic drop, folks!

Don't pick a social media fight with Chrissy, you're never going to win! Remember when she verbally destroyed Piers Morgan?!


Kris Jenner Posts Touching Tribute To Kim Kardashian On Her 36th Birthday

Posted on Fri Oct 21st, 2016 9:54am PDT       By X17 Staff

She's a proud mama!

On Friday morning, Kris Jenner posted a touching tribute to her cash cow daughter, Kim Kardashian, on the reality star's 36th birthday. We know that Kim's been going through a hard time ever since she was robbed at gunpoint by five masked men in Paris earlier in the month -- so we have a feeling Mama J wanted to throw some love at her struggling daughter, who cancelled her Vegas birthday bash and is having an intimate house party instead.

The vintage collage is filled with photos of the sexy star before the lip fillers, nose jobs and bodycon ensembles -- so it's actually pretty cute. Who could have known that the ribbon-wearing lil' lady would grow up to the the most beloved/hated sex symbol in the world one day?!

Along with the sweet snap, Kris wrote, "Happy Birthday to my precious Kimberly! @kimkardashian I love and adore you... you have brought so much joy into all of our lives and you are the most wonderful daughter, wife, sister, friend and mom."

The reality star gushed, "I thank God every day he blessed me with you and I cherish every single moment and memory. My heart is full of gratitude and I love you more than you will ever imagine or know... Mommy xo." Aww!

But these aren't the only old-school photos of Kim we've seen this week -- Kimbo's elementary school bestie, Allison Statter, posted a whopping 30 photos on the reality star's website from Kimmy's Sweet 16 bash, as a tribute -- and the pics are awesome!

On, Statter said she remembered how Kris and Robert Kardashian surprised her BFF with a brand new car for her birthday.

"Kim was always a tad bit younger than us, with her birthday being in October, so we were all ready for her to turn 16 so we didn't have to drive her everywhere anymore!” she joked. "Kim didn't think she was getting a car because her dad had convinced her she didn't need her own car at 16, so when Kim walked outside after lunch to her new white BMW in the parking lot, she was SO surprised!!!”

A white BMW?! But of course!


Khloe Kardashian Flies To Visit Boyfriend Tristan Thompson Amid Engagement Rumors

Posted on Fri Oct 21st, 2016 9:35am PDT       By X17 Staff

Long distance ain't no thang when you've got enough money to fly back and forth!

Khloe Kardashian has caught a flight to Cleveland almost every single weekend to go visit boyfriend Tristan Thompson since they began dating, and it's pretty clear the reality star is doing whatever she can to make their relationship work. Her romance is such a priority, she's even skipping sister Kim's 36th low key birthday celebration.

The Good American denim designer couldn't help but gush about her NBA star beau recently, and you know the minute anyone in the K clan starts talking publicly about a significant other it must be getting serious. "I have a great man… a good man, a good man," she said during an appearance on Extra.

Is she hiding something from us, though? Like an engagement? If you believe the rumors, yes!

"Tristan got down on one knee and asked Khloe to marry him. She’s delighted to be engaged and can’t wait to tie the knot early next year," a source dished to In Touch. "She and Tristan are madly in love and saying they want to spend the rest of their lives together," the source added.

She got engaged to ex Lamar Odom after three weeks of dating, so we wouldn't be completely shocked if she stepped out with a ring in the coming weeks. We just want her to be happy!


Donald Trump Walks Out Of Interview After Question About Being Labeled Racist And Sexist

Posted on Fri Oct 21st, 2016 8:40am PDT       By X17 Staff

Donald Trump does not want to be called a racist or a sexist -- too bad he's both!

During an interview with a local Columbus, Ohio television station on Thursday, the presidential candidate was questioned about being labeled a racist and a sexist -- and he just stormed off!

In the interview at the Delaware County Fairgrounds, NBC4‘s Colleen Marshall asked Trump at the rally, “Nineteen days out from the election, you’ve been labeled a racist, you’ve been called a sexist, how…”

Trump cut her off (as he LOVES to do to women) and said, “Thank you very much ... I am the least racist person you’ve ever met.”

Hey Donald, do we need to remind you of the many, many, many documented racist remarks you've made over the years? Did you forget about your excruciatingly uncomfortable "bad hombres" comment from Wednesday?

Trump walked out of a second interview at the Ohio rally. 10tv‘s Kevin Sanders asked the GOP candidate about the newest sexual assault allegations from Karena Virginia woman, who has alleged during a press conference with uber-laywer Gloria Allred yesterday, that Trump touched her inappropriately at the U.S. Open in 1998. Before walking away from the interview, Trump said, “I know nothing about that."

The 70-year-old seemed to be on a tear yesterday. After walking out of both interviews, he hit up the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner in NYC, and annual event which presidential hopefuls attend during campaign years -- a ritual usually filled with levity and jokes. Trump broke with tradition at the usually cordial event, making several mean-spirited comments at Clinton, referring to her as "Catholic hating," and causing the normally charitable audience to boo loudly.
